visionary. of course, besides lieutenant governor i want to thank members of our family board of supervisors our da and assessor record and department heads and chiefs all the other departments our controller and others are here and really a sincere appreciation for the work that jose has demonstrated. i want to say he's been such a great partner and i've had the privilege of working with him as a colleague but when i had the special chance of being the mayor here and wonder how to brag about san francisco i want to talk about more than the warriors something beyond
supportship. look at what jose doing. so when we starting bragging about our chirnd program boy did you get a lot of attention from the other mafrz in the city. we brought him to a time when there was signature interest generated from the hard work jose has put together. i know we were appointing someone who was going to go beyond the collection do side of that office. in those years as gavin will recall this city and a country faced itself down in horrible financial times and coming out of those years we asked ourselves what can we do better for the residents and the diverse community in the arena
of financial planning and a allotcy and a sense from day one. and so the very creative idea came out and certainly i want to thank lieutenant mayor gavin newsom we're noting now nationally renowned for our san francisco program our kindergarten to college program. i get to brag about that constantly and not 57 the burden of how that works and smart money and network and curtains in san francisco joining and leading cities on financial empowerment all over this country. those are some of the programs jose has put together gone beyond what we perceive he's
helping us to educate the public and a businesses l about financial responsibility. it's sounds boring to everyone outside the room it's financial stuff but i'll tell you if the cities don't do this and cities dodo this they'll be in trouble trouble. jose thank you and now you're going to work closely with me and many in the city and a entertain our businesses as and transform from a payroll tax to another tax system and low encourage job creation. he will be asked to step out of the traditional you've got to get it done and how do we help you do get under and city

work. i was thinking jose the other day when jaevent got sworn in how much time we spent that jeanette and she was celebrating at the time the only local no objection create that was initiated by jose and his team and the great work that was being done that was ahead of of its time. resay respectfully they have a role to play but we could counter balance some of the work they remember doing with regards to those businesses. the mayor is not exaggerating i was at a meeting and bank of d.c. all coming out of the work from jose.
success leaves clues and this is a successful city that leaves an remarkable amount of clues. we don't intimate because we're a model and mayor you should be proud of the leadership and everyone here. it's an honor to be welcomed back to the extent i was weekday waiting for the opportunity to swear jose in i haven't done this in a long time. but payroll a carmen forgot about me i didn't know she was sworn in i'm okay about this this is only on tv this is okay we'll talk later. so jose he lets get you sworn back in for four more years.
